Geospaces: Continuities Between Humans, Spaces, and the Earth is Alper Derinbogaz’s recently published book. Architecture history is a sliver of the vast evolution of habitat types. The shape of the land and how humans inhabit it are central to all architectural endeavors. But, our current understanding of architecture is predicated on a distinction between nature and culture.

Modernism and its split from the vernacular have resulted in a crisis of links, the ramifications of which we are currently witnessing. To advance toward more Earth-friendly design, we must consider continuities, such as the emergence of natural forms, the history of human habitation, and the future of fabrication technologies. What if we consider structures to be natural iterations rather than manmade objects?

This book is an extended visual essay of ideas, photos, sketches, and projects that follows Alper Derinbogaz’s work throughout the last decade, framing a strategy based on empathy with the Earth. Geospaces investigates architecture through the prism of evolution, tracing connections between topography, geology, genetics, ecologies, and construction technologies, proposing that a hybrid approach to creating will determine our future habitats.
